What are some of you guys views about the legalization of marijuana?

I am writing an argument paper about it for college. I already know my view, but I'd like some insite into what other peoples thoughts on it are. :)

Legalization would have the same effect on drug related violence as when we lifted prohibition on alcohol in the late 30,s. Inner city gangs and drug cartels would no longer receive a financial benefit from their criminal activities. This would be the number one social benefit to be gained from legalization, regardless of all the minor health and moral issues people bring up.

Um, let's see... Unlike alcohol, nobody dies from it. Thousands of people are either injured or die from alcohol every year. This does not happen with m@riju@na. Um, really I see no reason why it shouldn't be legal, except for the fact they can't tax it.

In some states it's already legal. And everywhere it's legal, it will undoubtedly be regulated, as marijuana it is a mind altering drug. If it's regulated, it will be taxed, and if taxed, it will not be available to minors, much like tobacco.
I do not favor the relaxation of availability, but consider it inevitable. When I was young, marijuana had 3-4% THC by weight; today, it's often 20-30% and much more Potent pot.

God made it. It has many medicinal purposes with out major side affects unlike chemicals from pharmacy meds. Everything in moderation.

Other than the fact it cures some cancers and works well for pain and numerous other ailments big business would loose millions of dollars a year by not selling man made drugs.I.e.chemicals. I've never heard of anyone killing someone else while they were high on pot.

Frankly, I believe ALL illicit drugs should remain banned. It's bad enough dodging drunks on the highways, without having to dodge stoners also. If you want mj legalized, and want to use it yourself, do this, surrender your drivers license when you do.Remember, it may be your 'right' to light up your doobie, but it's a legal licensed privilege to drive our highways!

Do you think alcohol should be banned also, because of the threat drunk drivers cause to those on the road?
Report as
Yes I do.
Not even roads, but also in family, colleges, even in their own life, addiction cause problems.
